      Royal "Hessen" Hunting Bandolier

      $3,795.00

      This uncleaned royal hunting bandolier is an absolute work of art and displays the highest quality workmanship. The black leather over-the-shoulder strap has bullion braid running down each side and features a rectangular buckle, slide and tip in German silver on the reverse. Obverse strap features a raised elk head with antlers, ring and chain attached to a needle pin with two straps all in German silver. Below the elk head is a silver disc with the raised gilt monogram of the owner surmounted by the crown of a baron. At the juncture of the obverse/reverse straps is a silver disc with raised gilt hunting horn and oak leaves. Attached to the bandolier are the leather straps with clips for attaching the Hirschfanger. The reverse is brown leather backed and has the manufacturer's name stamped in two locations. Bandolier has some age "crazing" but still rates as an ultra-rare museum quality piece. Exc. (15011)
